: Liability Insurance
D ar Tom:
Response to your request for a legal opinion as to whether
o not it is necessary and/or avisable for #he District to pur-
Sas -liability insurance in conjunction with the Feor River
ins, Florida Project and other works of the District, I wish
advise as follows:
T same problem arose in the "oyster suit" because the Corps
Engineers claimed the District was responsible to hold it
nes, etc., and that is why we beoame involved. We were
Sng to litigate this point with the Corps on the basis that
SDistrict could not be responsible for its negligence; ho-
r, the case was settled at a very nominal price without final
d termination by the Court.
Ido not believe that anyone can give you a yes or no opinion.
tere are many facets to the matter. I suggest that we bring
Smatter up before the Board and I will adVise then approxi-
tely how the matter can be handled. Then, the Board would
o to make a policy opinion as to the matter of liability
Assurance, which would be very expensive.
